MirrorBrain is a framework to run a content delivery network using mirror servers. It solves a challenge that many popular open source projects face: a flood of download requests, often magnitudes more than a single site could practically handle. A central (and probably the most obvious) part is a "download redirector" that automatically redirects requests from Web browsers or download programs to a mirror server near them. Choosing a suitable mirror for a user's request is the key, and MirrorBrain uses geolocation and global routing data to make a sensible choice and achieve load-balancing for the mirrors at the same time. The algorithm is both sophisticated and easy to control and tune. In addition, MirrorBrain monitors mirrors, scans them for files, generates mirror lists, and more.
Dummy Data Generator is a tool that generates dummy data for populating systems for testing. The data includes names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, and social "connections". Names are generated by using US Census data on the most common names. Email addresses are just a random string for the user portion and always use "example.com" for the domain. Currently the only output format is CSV.
